Gynecology is a medical specialty that focuses on the health of the female reproductive system, including the external genitalia, vagina, cervix, uterus, Fallopian tubes, ovaries, and breasts. Gynecology primarily deals with nonpregnant female health. The goal of gynecology is to monitor the reproductive system for signs of trouble and to treat any conditions if they do arise.

Dr. Kent is an expert surgeon who specializes in the following procedures:
Laparoscopic procedure uses an instrument called a laparoscope, which supports a tiny camera that transmits an image of the internal structures to a monitor. Dr. Kent performs a laparoscopic surgery by viewing this monitor and utilizing slender surgical tools inserted through small incisions. Laparoscopic surgery offers less bleeding, reduced pain, and faster healing times than traditional surgery. Laparoscopic surgery is effective in treating endometriosis, uterine fibroids, and other gynecological disorders.
A laser is a tool that uses concentrated light energy to perform surgical procedures. Dr. Kent may use a laser during a laparoscopic treatment, or she may perform laser surgery as a stand-alone procedure. Lasers can be used to make incisions, remove tissue, coagulate bleeding vessels, or to vaporize tissue.
A hysteroscope is an instrument that works like a telescope to allow a doctor to see the opening of the cervix and the inside of the uterus. Dr. Kent performs hysteroscopy as a diagnostic procedure and as surgical treatment. When she conducts an operative hysteroscopy, the hysteroscope makes it possible for her to perform surgery without incisions, which is less painful and easier to recover from than traditional surgery.
